Upsets were the rule (until the last few races) during the Sunday (Aug. 30) card at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, with the trend featuring in two $35,000 divisions of a Pennsylvania All-Stars contest for three-year-old pacing colts taken by Enough Sun ($29.00) and Tell Them Lou ($45.20).

Both winners found success sitting third-inside for most of the mile. The Somebeachsomewhere colt Enough Sun was content to stay behind favoured Manticore and Tru Lou most of the way, then backed out late turn to swing wide and pass four horses in the lane. He slid by to a half-length win over Manticore in a lifetime-best 1:50. David Miller drove the winner, unraced at two and now winner of half his eight starts, for trainer Brian Brown and owner Alan Keith.

Driver Scott Zeron won with the Sweet Lou gelding Tell Them Lou, a 1:50.2 winner. Favoured Cattlewash got to the half in :56 and looked like he could be tough to overhaul, but Zeron and Tell Them Lou got clearance along the inside and overpowered the chalk, coming their own last half in :54 for a one length victory. Jim Campbell trains the winner for Fashion Farms LLC and Judith Peres.

In the $14,000 conditioned distaff pacing feature, the veteran Lispatty sat behind favoured Alexas Power most of the mile, then overpowered the pacesetter by three-quarters of a length in 1:51.2. Marcus Miller drove the McArdle mare, who has now won $959,799 and 37 races, for trainer Gilbert Garcia-Herrera and owner Gilbert Garcia-Owen.
